Legal Ethics in Data Governance

1h 2m

Created on June 11, 2019




Modern society and legal practice has become increasingly data-driven in recent years. The sheer amount of personal data collected by organizations now is simply staggering. With the tremendous increase in the collection, processing, analysis, storage, and transfer of data, the privacy, security, and even the safety of the people that the data concerns are at risk. 

It would be fair to say that society and the corresponding commercial landscape is transforming before our eyes. The technologies underlying these changes evolve rapidly and that makes it very difficult for existing laws and ethical frameworks to keep up. As a result, data ethics has emerged as a new area in response to new ethical challenges related to the use (and abuse) of data, the algorithms used to parse and analyze that data, and the data practices accepted by the public and private sectors.
